We are now (as of May 1st 2013) located at

(Beltline/12/18 East toward Cambridge)
across from the Yahara Hills Golf Course at the Dane County Landfill.
Guidelines for Materials Brought to Clean Sweep
Waste materials should be packaged in boxes or rigid totes to keep products upright and prevent
spillage during transportation to the collection facility. Keep materials in their original
containers. DO NOT PACK OR CO-MINGLE YOUR WASTE MATERIALS IN PLASTIC TRASH BAGS. Individual
items may be bagged in plastic if the original container is compromised. Do not mix any
materials. Upon arrival at the landfill site, follow the entrance road, drive past the scale,
go directly to the Clean Sweep building, and stop under the canopy. Clean Sweep staff will
greet you and direct you to the counter (inside of the walk-in door under the canopy) to
collect your payment. You will be asked to furnish proof of residency. If you have items
or materials that are subject to fees, you will pay at this point. Payment is to be in the
form of cash or credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). No checks or currency larger than $20
bills are accepted. After payment of fees, Clean Sweep staff will assist you in unloading
your vehicle. Facility operators reserve the right to refuse any waste or material deemed
unacceptable. If you are bringing gasoline or other fuels to Clean Sweep, remember to
transport your fuel in an approved container (no more than 6 gal. size). Clean Sweep staff
will pour off the fuels and return your container, time permitting. Unapproved or unsafe fuel
containers will not be returned.
